Why I hate the word sale

I hate the word sale…… I just hate it. And the reasons are fairly simple:

  • Things always seem to go "on sale" after I buy them. A day or 2 after a purchase that same merchant has it for a lower "on sale" price. I feel like I instantly lost money. Maybe I’m just unlucky?
  • "On Sale" tells me they could have sold it to me at a lower price to begin with and we could have skipped the "will they have a Labor Day/Memorial Day/4th of July/after-Christmas/Black Friday sale" second guessing and waiting. When I want a product, I’d like to just buy it and have it in my hands as soon as possible. I don’t want to wait for a sale.

Maybe I’m just simple minded. I merely want to feel comfortable in my purchase, I do not want to feel "ripped off" 3 days or a week later when I see it for less. A 70% off sale just tells me that their normal price has an astronomical markup as they must be making money at 70% off, so they were making a huge amount of money at the regular price.

So at Gourmet-Delights.com the driving force behind our pricing is to have the LOWEST delivered price EVERY SINGLE DAY. I shop all my competitors weekly, if not more often. And I have yet to find them undercutting my prices. I price things reasonably, and keep them there. You can have the confidence that when you buy from Gourmet-Delights.com you are getting the lowest price. You can buy today, next week, or next month without needing to wait for "a sale", and most importantly not seeing it "on sale" tomorrow and feeling you got ripped off.

I also want you to buy when you want and need it. No waiting for a sale. And I want you to buy in "reasonable quantities". No one wants 6 bottles of Extra Virgin Olive Oil sitting around because it was "on sale" this week. They can go bad if stored too long. Buy what you can comfortably use in a month or 2 and then come back to Gourmet-Delights.com to get the newest, freshest batch when you are almost out. We will both be happier because you will have the freshest and tastiest ingredients always at your fingertips.

Some items on the website do list "on sale"... and you might ask what’s that about. Simply, that is the price the majority of my competitors are selling that same item for. It gives you some idea that while they will charge $30 for Truffle & Salt (and they charge you shipping on top of that), my $21.95 price (with free shipping) is incredibly reasonable and "on sale". The difference is the "sale" is EVERY SINGLE DAY. Buy with confidence and know you are getting prices 15%, 20%, 25%, or more off what everyone else is charging. And you can buy at those prices every single day.

This wonderful blend of ground Italian black truffle and sea salt is irresistible with eggs, grilled vegetables, baked potatoes, french fries, pizza, in soups, and on popcorn!

Main dishes, such as delicate fishes and light pastas, come alive with a sprinkle of this magical salt. Sprinkle it in chicken soup as you put it in the bowl for an amazing flavor!!

Every dish, every bite, becomes a special mouth-watering occasion.

If you love the taste of truffles, this is a MUST HAVE in your kitchen!

A friend of ours keeps it in her purse for those "emergency" trips to fast food burger joints.... TRUFFLE FRIES :)

Black Truffle Butter (Savini)

Average rating:

The Savini family business is world famous for their truffles. Since the 1920s, the family tradition of handcrafted truffle products has passed down over four generations.

The truffles are individually selected by Luciano and Cristiano Savini. They are personally out with the truffle hunters in the heart of Tuscany so they can guarantee the highest quality and ensure the origin of each and every truffle. The production of truffle products, like this exceptional truffle butter, is then carried out using traditional methods and solely at the request of the importer. This guarantees both the freshness of the product and the 'shelf life'. Every jar shows a "best by" date so you know you are getting the freshest butter available. Large visible pieces of real truffle are in every jar.

  • Start your day off with a perfectly cooked egg and some truffle butter.
  • Put it on hot baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, and french fries.
  • Place a spoonful on your hot steak and watch it explode with truffle flavor.
  • A little bit with seared or grilled scallops is otherworldly.
  • Truffle butter for lobster? ABSOLUTELY!
  • Add a heaping teaspoon to your risotto 5 minutes before it is done to make truffle risotto!
  • Toast some bread, spread some truffle butter on it, add a touch of grated parmesan cheese, and serve as an appetizer.
  • Mix together an egg yolk, a teaspoon of truffle butter, copious amounts of grated parmesan cheese, and two teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil as a sauce for pasta.
  • Rub it on a hot ear of corn on the cob.
  • Use it as your butter for popcorn... Truffle popcorn!
  • A perfect dipping sauce for a freshly cooked artichoke.

Ingredients: butter, black truffles 5% (Tuber aestivum Vitt.), sunflower oil, salt, pepper.

Milk fat: 76%; Total fat: 95%

Aji Limo Organic Chili Pods (dried)
Aji Limo Organic Chili Pods (dried) Be the first one to write a review

Aji Limo is a chili grown and used mostly on the northern coast of Peru. The pod is 2-3 inches long and changes from a yellow to deep reddish-orange color when it ripens. Aji Limo is spicy (a heat level of 8 on a scale of 10; 60,000 Scoville units) and is primarily used to prepare ceviche and rice dishes. It is also wonderful as a base for chicken and pasta recipes.

To create a paste, remove the stems and soak ajis in water overnight. Drain and mix ajis in a blender with salt, pepper, garlic and extra virgin olive oil. For a more mild paste, remove the seeds and veins before blending. You can freeze the paste for longer storage as necessary.
